Our story

Anna is an english fashion designer with over 10 years experience in a luxury Parisian house and Philipp is a film maker from South Tyrol, Italy. After more than 10 years living and working in Paris, they were craving a different lifestyle where they could bring up their 2 daughters surrounded by nature.

Sharing a love for renovation, design and hosting friends and family, when they came across the charming Château Gonneville sur Honfleur in the heart of Normandy, they fell in love instantly and their dreams of a new life in the countryside started to become reality.

They got the keys to the Chateau in May 2019 and moved their family to Normandy to begin a new life, renovating their 18th century Chateau close to Honfleur.

Their vision is to create a beautiful, relaxing place where guests feel at home and are treated like old friends. Every guest’s stay will help them to continue to restore the Chateau and become part of it’s story.

The Château is currently under going extensive restoration and renovation works, and they hope to opens the doors of their luxury guest house ‘Le Fleur’ in June 2020.

You can follow their journey on their instagram page @Chateau_Gonneville_SurHonfleur or on Facebook.

They are also excited to announce that we will be featured on season 4 of Channel 4’s ‘Escape to the Château DIY’ airing Spring 2020.

We are very happy to have been given a grant for the renovation of the facade by the regional board and the heritage society – fondation du patrimoine.
